Ryan Barrett, who works at Google, writes that he’s got a newly nicely formatted of his gmail vs. pine article available.
The bottom line?
I ended up using it for five weeks, and while I eventually switched back to Pine, I liked Gmail a lot more than I expected. It made me question lots of things I took for granted, and showed me that there’s plenty of innovation left in email clients. I’m currently writing patches for Pine to implement the features I miss most from Gmail.
